This Summer

July 9, 2015

Yep, another summertime outfit brought to you by Finnish weather… Long sleeves will still be a nr. 1 choice I’ll pick to put on when leaving a house for at least one more week.

Somebody even made a joke on FaceBook with a graveyard and a sign “RIP Finnish Summer 2.7.-5.7.2015” . I must admit that I had a really good laugh after seeing that. ๐Ÿ˜€

While most of the Europe is boiling hot, I’ve been enjoying a real Fall weather, sauna every day and occasional walks in the nature. Since real Summer days are so rare and very “sacred” in Helsinki, I’ve been thinking about the things that I still want to do before the mid/ end of August which is when the Summer is for sure over in Scandinavia.

This Summer I want to:

*Learn how to make my own sushi rolls

*Eat at least once more self customised Magnum ice cream

*Visit an amusement park and go on the rides with my daughter

*Take a day trip to an island nearby and have a picnic

*Take a many kilometres long walk through the nature and just be aware of the beauty that surrounds me

*Eat tons of berries!! Yum!

*Test two restaurants in the city that I haven’t been to yet

*Spend quality time with friends

*Count my blessings every day and focus less on things that are not going “right”

Do you have a similar list for your Summer? Have a wonderful weekend my friends!

I’m wearing: Shoes – Michael Kors, Sweater – Balenciaga, Jeans – Tiger of Sweden, Bag – Borsha, Blouse – Zara, Bracelets – HOH1960/ JCrew, Sunglasses – Prada

    Sto se odjevanja tice, mene ljeto najmanje inspirira i dok vecina blogera kuka ns zimu, meni je slojevitost puno draza od topica, badica, sandalica, hlacica… Nastavno na navedeno, meni bi ova finska klima bas pasala… bitno da nema kise ๐Ÿ™‚
    Kombinacija mi je savrsena! Ova vesta je tako graciozna a torbica me odusevila jos i vise od one velike! Pre-kras-na! :****

    • Reply natali karppinen July 10, 2015 at 10:10 PM

      Puno ti hvala na ovako lijepim komplimentima. Ja isto mislim da je moda i odijevanje nzanimljivije u jesen i zimu nego u prolijece a pogotovo u lijeto. Iako ne mogu odoliti divnim haljinicama, suknjama i sandalama, vise volim slojevito odijevanje i mislim da se najbolje mogu “izraziti” na takav nacin. Jedini problem kod mene je da imam osijecaj da finska zima traje vjecno pa ja rado prigrlim haljinice kad mogu. ๐Ÿ˜€

      I had a lot of lovely Cali sunshine for three months and then some Croatian sun for another three weeks so I should be all good now, but nope I just can’t live in a rainy and “dark” place for too long. ๐Ÿ˜€
